Gingle has announced the launch of its triple-channel DDR3 memory kits for Intel Core i7 processors. Gingle’s new RAM modules are available in 3 GB (1 GB x 3) and 6 GB (2 GB x 3) variations as well as 1600MHz and 1800MHz speeds. All variations share the same stock timings (8-8-8-24). While Gingle’s 16000MHz memory requires 1.65v, it is interesting that Gingle’s 1800MHz modules do not conform to Intel’s recommended voltage, with a 1.8v requirement. Pricing information has not yet been made public, but it is sure to follow soon.
Seagate’s Savvio 15K.2 second generation, 2.5-inch hard drive claims to be the fastest and greenest mechanical disk drive in the world, with the highest performance and reliability of any HDD on the market today. The 15,000 RPM drive also features a self-encrypting option that helps protect data from being stolen or hacked, while maintaining minimal power requirements with Seagate’s onboard PowerTrim(TM) technology (70% better power efficiency than comparable 3.5-inch 15,000 RPM drives). Power consumption is a major factor for server farms that run hundreds of hard drives since any decrease in power consumption can make a significant impact on the monthly power bill. 146GB and 73GB versions are available. Both variations use the same SAS 2.0 6Gb/s speed interface, which offers 100% faster maximum data throughput and higher signal strength from the previous interface revision. The new interface makes the drive particularly well-suited for RAID configurations, which can yield as much as a 115% improvement for system-level performance. The Seagate Savvio 15K.2 will begin shipping in December, 2008.

Alienware’s latest M17 gaming notebook is feature-packed with ATI CrossFire multi-GPU technology (ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3870 GPUs), Intel’s first mobile quad-core CPU (Core 2 Extreme QX9300), up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM, as much as 1TB disk storage (via dual 500GB HDDs in a RAID0 configuration), enhanced sound system (two speakers, with a built-in subwoofer), backlit keyboard, and much more. The system is 17, and offers two display options (a standard LCD with a 1440×900 screen resolution or a Clearview WUXGA LCD with a 1920×1200 resolution). The notebook features the Intel PM45 + ICH9M-E chipset, which can be outfitted with a TV tuner as well. The laptop is powered by a 12-cell lithium-ion battery.
Although the pricing begins quite reasonably for an Alienware system ($1,399), expect to pay significantly more for a fully-loaded configuration.
